Leggo my...Vans Wheat-Free Waffles?

I haven't cooked anything new. I'm trying to eat up my leftover noodle salad and bean soup before Thanksgiving on Sunday. But I had time to have a quick breakfast this morning, and I thought I'd share. No creativity on my part...all convenience food!













I fried up some of Yves bacon strips and served them with ketchup. These would be awesome in a bacon toasted sandwich or a BLT but I also wanted to clear up some room in my freezer, so I used up the last of my Vans wheat free blueberry frozen waffles. When I first had these waffles, I wasn't overly impressed. They were grainy and a weird texture. I think because its wheat free. But, I toasted them a bit longer than usual today, and they actually tasted pretty good! I think I'll check out some different brands, but I might buy them again. They're great in a pinch and a lot better for you than Eggos. Of course, I drizzled them with pure maple syrup...mmm those pools of maple syrup in the grooves are making me drool all over again.

If you want to try some yummy wheat free/gluten free/vegan waffles, try Lifestream's Buckwheat Wildberry waffles (they come in a purple box).

Thanks danielle. I'll look for those next time I'm at the health store. I don't neccessarily want a wheat free waffle, but it seems most of the vegan ones available are wheat free, aren't they?

You should try Van's Organic Blueberry or Organic Flax Waffles, these are also vegan (free of egg and dairy). More info at www.vansintl.com. Hooray for vegan waffles! - The team at Van's Intl. Foods
